Synapse error with LXDE desktop.

Asked by Brian Durant on 2011-05-20

I installed synapse on Linux Mint 10 LXDE. When I try to start synapse in the terminal, I get the following error:

$ synapse

** (synapse:3269): WARNING **: desktop-file-service.vala:267: Desktop session type is not recognized, assuming GNOME.
[17:25:46.234066 Info] [UILauncher] Binding activation to <Control>space
(synapse:3269): GtkHotkey-DEBUG: Listener Type: GtkHotkeyX11Listener
[17:25:46.271924 Info] [GuiSynapseWindow] Screen is NOT composited.
Segmentation fault

What can I do to get synapse to play nicely with the LXDE desktop?

I think it'll be best to install synapse-dbg, and run `gdb -ex run -ex bt synapse`. Paste the output when it crashes.

Thanks for the quick reply. Here is the output:

$ gdb -ex run -ex bt synapse
